Description

If the traditional ‘Red Deer Tongue’ leaves you wanting more red, try this first release in a series that combines the heirloom ‘Green Deer Tongue’ with our ‘Hyper Red Rumple Waved’. Leaves are long, pointed, and dark red all over, with a contrasting white midrib. Hard to classify by type. Begins as a unique dark red cutting type, then makes a butter-cos heart. Probably best as a spring lettuce. Has been very popular since it’s introduction via Fedco in 2005. New reselection for better uniformity. Farm Original Variety!
